[Ardour-Dev] Hybrid tracks

Hello devs,

I build A3 yesterday and tried the hybrid tracks but was not capable to
make them do something predictable. Before I flood Mantis I'd like to
ask you, if these problems are adressed anyways:

- I can make a MIDI-region and put notes into it. The light-yellow
level-meter in the trackhead moves if I play them and pressing the
"keys" in the piano-roll sends notes to the chosen output (external
synth plays). But playing the region does not move the meter or send any
notes at all.

- Inserting a synth-plugin to a hybrid track produces the old message
complaining about the inputs of the plugin vs. outputs of the track. The
message even admits, that there is a MIDI-out but still says, it cannot
add this plugin here.

- on the other hand: It is not possible to drop imported audio-files to
a Audio+MIDI Track.

- the audio-input meter works as expected but recording audio on the
hybrid track does not produce a region (though it shows the usual
graphic while recording without a graph for the wave...)

So in a word: the hybrid tracks are completely unusable here.

And by the way: the region list shows entries with a light-grey font on
a light-gray background. This may or may not be an issue in KDE(but no
normal user will care or even think of such a reason for such a
grotesque problem...).

best regards
